Mike Sims-Walker’s return to Jacksonville didn’t last very long.

The Jaguars announced that they placed the wide receiver on injured reserve Wednesday with a knee injury. He returned to the Jaguars, who he played for from 2008-2010, after being cut by the Rams on October 17th. He played two games and had one catch for 11 yards.

He’ll be replaced on the roster by Brian Robiskie, who the team was awarded off of waivers. Robiskie was waived by the Browns on Tuesday when they signed running back Thomas Clayton to bolster their ailing backfield. Robiskie has been a disappointment since being selected in the second round of the 2009 Draft out of Ohio State, compiling 34 catches for 441 yards and two touchdowns during his time in Cleveland. It would be surprising to see him turn things around in the current Jacksonville passing game.

Sims-Walker will be a free agent after this season and it will be interesting to see who gives him a shot. He had a strong season in 2009, but regressed a great deal last season. He also has a history of knee problems and the fact that he was a total non-factor in St. Louis this season to overcome while looking for a new job.
